NEW LONDON, Conn. --- The Colby College field hockey team was able to cut Connecticut College's margin to 2-1 with just under 17 minutes to play, but Connecticut College scored less than two minutes later on the way to a 3-1 win in New England Small College Athletic Conference play Saturday.

The Mules fall to 5-8 overall and 1-7 in the conference, while Conn College is 4-8 overall and 3-5 in league play.

Hanna Wagner scored the lone goal of the opening half 16:11 into the contest and added the third goal at 54:54. The Camels went ahead 2-0 at 47:22 when Kelsey Nickerson had an unassisted goal.

Colby got its lone goal when Heather Quadir, back on the field after missing time with an injury, tallied at 53:26 off a pass from co-captain Meghan Saccone. Quadir leads the Mules with eight goals and four assists for 20 points.

Steph Quinn stopped four shots for Conn College, while Liz Fontaine made seven saves for the Mules.

Colby finishes the regular season at home to rival Bates College on Friday at 4 p.m. The Mules could still make the NESCAC playoffs with a win over the Bobcats and a loss by Wesleyan University to Conn College.
